“Nothing is more important in any mature organisation than our employees, we spend time training them, mentoring them and encouraging them to bring added value to our organization. Therefore, it makes sense that we nurture them in an Incident Free Workplace and ensure everyone goes gome safe everyday.” 

Jonathan Eades, VP Corporate Safety Health Environment and Quality

“I believe that an excellent safety culture is important to any organization. The major elements for an organizational Safety culture are strategy, leadership, employee engagement and culture.”

Wolfgang Homey, Chief Financial Officer

“By committing to and signing the Incident Free Workplace charter our leaders demonstrate the personal values and commitment to the safety program which is a value not a priority.” 

Neil Reynolds, President EMEA Region

“Exyte has made the transition from managing safety through tasks and checklists to one that makes safety a cultural imperative. That is only done by impacting the hearts and minds of our team.” 

Rick Whitney, President Americas Region 

“It’s important to have conversations about safety with workers regularly, not only to correct unsafe behaviors but to reward safe behaviors too, only then can we enhance the Incident Free Workplace program where all our employees go home safe.”

Mark Garvey, President Asia-Pacific Region

Safety Story

On 20 March at a project site in Taiwan, there was an unplanned release of a CO2 fire suppression system in an electrical room. This release and the work going on in the electrical room was in no way associated with Exyte or our work. However, when they became aware of the incident our Mr. Chen Shao Zhang (Len) and Mr. Wilson Soh immediately responded to the scene and went into action. Len put on a breathing apparatus and went into the electrical room and assisted in the recovery of an individual who had been overcome by the gas. Wilson posted himself in the corridor and coordinated the activities of the other responders and secured the area to ensure no unprotected personnel entered the unsafe areas.

All persons impacted by the CO2 release eventually fully recovered. Had it not been for the quick and selfless activities of these two Exyte employees, the outcomes could have been very different. I was proud to recognize the behavior of these two men in front of their project team when I recently visited the site. For me, their commitment to Safety was clearly demonstrated by their quick actions and not in any way hindered by questions about whether the work area was ours or the effected personnel were Exyte staff. Their actions were solely and purely in the interest of Safety and quite possibly saved lives. I have never been prouder to shake the hand of two men who truly represent our IFW motto of Safety Every day for Everyone! 

Well done Len and Wilson and thank you for being safety heroes on 20 March. 

Mark Garvey, President Asia-Pacific-Region
